For many music fans the combination of native Detroiter, hard rock and Halloween theatrics means one thing: Alice Cooper.
The man who sang “Welcome to My Nightmare” and made electric chairs and guillotines a part of his stage act was in Detroit yesterday for a benefit to help The Kirk Gibson Foundation for Parkinson’s.
But Alice Cooper says Detroit never really leaves him. In fact he’s working on a record focused entirely on the city.
Cooper says Detroit’s music history and its current rebirth are worth celebrating.
